I finished my Rainbow Autumn Chain quilt top in May ‘18, sent it out for quilting in Feb ‘19, and finally got it bound the very end of April ‘19. The 48” x 48” quilt is made up of 16 blocks—12 which were made by #IGHoneyBees2018 swarm-mates and four which were made by me. I really love how all the blocks work together to create a beautiful color wheel. My swarm-mates were able to choose the color of their choice, and it all worked out so well. I did make an intentional choice to make the last block on the bottom row in red violet to finish up the color wheel.

Great choice of binding! What are you plans for the quilt?
Hi Mary! This is the first Bee Hive quilt that I’ve seen finished. How incredibly cool! I can’t believe that all your hive mates picked different colors, first of all. And I love the layout you chose. It’s just a perfect representation of the rainbow. WOW! Nice job on the quilting too – all the different fabrics come together so nicely. ~smile~ Roseanne
Thanks, Roseanne, I’m super happy with how this quilt turned out. I think I’m going to take it to work and put it on the loveseat in my office. It’s kind of a weird size—not really throw size or a mini that can go on a wall.
Take care, Mary

Oooh, Mary! That will look so nice on a couch, plus you’ll get to enjoy it 8 hours a day! Win/win all around. ~smile~ Roseanne
great quilt Mary. I love the graduation of colour . The binding and the quilting set it off so well.
